I disagree. If you had anything to do with professional recording and or
broadcasting, you would have found that BETA was by far the preferred
choice. In fact, up until digital really took over, nearly every
broadcasting and recording studio I worked in used BETA. 

Technical excellence and how relevant it is depends on the user
base. For me and the work I do, it is critical and I will select
technical excellence over popularity any day.
